Days of the week in Spanish

When it comes to studying a language, it is very common to start with the basic vocabulary. So, that’s what we are going to do today, by learning How to say Monday in Spanish? (and also, how to say the rest of the days of the week in Spanish, really). Let’s get started with the working days:

MondayLunes
TuesdayMartes
WednesdayMiércoles
ThursdayJueves
FridayViernes

As same as in English, the names of the days of the week are related to the solar system. Lunes is related with La Luna (the moon), Martes is related with Marte (Mars), Miércoles is related to Mercurio (Mercury), Jueves is related to Júpiter and Viernes is related to Venus.

One peculiar thing about the days of the week in Spanish is that we don’t have a plural for these nouns. You can either say “El lunes” (with the singular article) to refer to a particular Monday in your calendar, or “Los lunes” (with the plural article) to refer to every Monday.

How to say Saturday and Sunday in Spanish?

Finally, the most expected days!

Saturday: Sábado

Sunday: Domingo

Sábado is actually related to Saturno (Saturn), but Domingo is related to the Cristian tradition. The name comes from the Latin Dominicus Dies (The day of the Lord).

Pay particular attention to these two names, because they do have a plural, by adding an “s” at the end, like every Spanish word ending with a vowel. So, if you want to refer to every Saturday or every Sunday, you have to say “Los sábados” or “Los domingos”.

Challenge: listen to this song and try to find the names of the Days of the Week in Spanish.
